iPhone X New Zealand pricing


Apple and New Zealand's three biggest telecommunications providers -- Spark, Vodafone New Zealand, and 2degrees -- have unveiled their iPhone X pricing alongside pre-orders from October 27. Purchasing the iPhone X outright from Apple will set New Zealanders back NZ$1,799 for the 64GB model or NZ$2,099 for 256GB. The phone is available in silver and space grey. The iPhone X similarly costs more in the UK, starting at £999 with VAT, and in Australia where it starts at AU$1,579 and Singapore where the base iPhone X costs SG$1,648. All plans include a Spotify Premium and Lightbox subscription, as well as 1GB of Spark Wi-Fi per day, with unlimited calls and texts to both Australia and New Zealand, as well as rollover data.

Al Jazeera

As Australia rolls towards the polls this Saturday, election talk is everywhere: seeping into cafes, dining rooms and cold nights at the pub. While public confidence in the schoolyard barbs and robotic debates of the main party leaders is dubious, there's still a feverish expectation in the air. But for the hundreds and thousands of New Zealanders living and working in Australia - myself included - the chatter falls short. Because none of us can vote. There are an estimated 650,000 New Zealanders living in Australia under the Trans-Tasman Travel Arrangement, which supports the free movement of Australians and New Zealanders across the Pacific.
